Yup - good old Graham Kerr. When The Food Network was just getting off the ground, they used to air his old shows - as well as those of Julia Child - in the middle of the night. I'd get up specifically just to watch them.

Graham Kerr was one of the first people I enjoyed watching cook on TV.

I have 2 of Graham Kerr's original cookbooks. The pages have yellowed with use and age.

Bobby Flay...I visited his restaurants and I have nothing but GREAT THINGS to say about the entire experience. He knows what he is doing!

You got that right. We go to the Mesa Grill here in Vegas and am always blown away at the originality and quality of his dishes. Never had anything less than awesome there.

Hey - even Anthony Bourdain, who is definitely not a fan of Food Network or its "stable" of "celebrity chefs", enjoyed the food at Bobby Flay's Las Vegas Mesa Grill. (It's on the "No Reservations" Las Vegas episode.)

I agree. Besides Julia, he was a huge influence on me when I was younger and showed me how fun cooking can be!
